Obama Lifts Health Mandate for Those With Canceled Plans

quote:

Americans whose health plans are being canceled because their coverage doesn’t meet Obamacare rules will be exempt from the mandate that they carry insurance, under a change announced by the Obama administration.

How can he do this legally? Should that not be something that Congress has to authorize?

Wait, so they don't have to buy insurance period? Or they have the option to buy catastrophic policies like was reported yesterday?

What in fricks sake....
quote:

“This is a common-sense clarification of the law,” Joanne Peters, a spokeswoman for U.S. Health Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius, said in an e-mail. “For the limited number of consumers whose plans have been canceled and are seeking coverage, this is one more option.”


This goes against the entire premise and all previously made arguments for the law

It's absurd.

How are Americans expected to have confidence in this?

They have to be telling themselves, "just make it to 2014."

Again, how can they do this legally or constitutionally?

I am aware of the regulatory authority under the law, however if this is true, it seems to undermine the whole purpose of the law. Regulatory interpretations, I thought, were limited to fit within the framework of the existing law and clarify ambiguities in the law.

So much for equal protection. Now the law will be applied in arbitrary and capricious fashion.

Why was it wrong when Ted Cruz wanted to do this?

Obama is a hostage taking terrorist.

They are letting those whose catastrophic coverage plans got cancelled for not being sufficient purchase the same kind of plans. I'm not sure that they'll be offered due to the insurance companies doing their work ahead of time to prepare for this. It's not like they can just make up new coverage options on the spot.

This is all being done because the administration fears one headline: Obamacare has caused a net negative in number of insured

The industry said this week that it would allow payment for coverage beginning Jan. 1 as late as Jan. 10. While insurers haven’t agreed to the other requests, they are automatically enrolling in new plans many policy-holders who would otherwise lose coverage.


Wait ... people slated to lose their policies are being enrolled in a new plan whether they sign up for it or not?

Nice comeback. I really did laugh.

This whole thing is so ridiculous, it defies description.

Amateur hour. Elementary school-aged kids could do better because they have a stronger sense of fairness.

They managed to pull it off with GHG PSD and Title V limits. Just made the shite up. No one cares if its for "the greater good"

I'm not a lawyer or a judge. So, I have no clue on how its legal to make shite up as you go along. You have to have a special degree in bullshite, lying, and making shite up to explain it.

All laws are equal. Just some are more equal than others.

It wouldn't surprise me a bit if the HHS just said... don't worry about premiums, we'll reimburse you for those, and explain it away as being "Just another option to help those without health care coverage".

I really can't figure out how this question isn't on the lips of 100% of the people in the media.

Are we now operating under the open premise that the President can simply unilaterally rewrite laws by fiat?

WTF is going on in our country? Cmon liberals. You SHOULD be pissed about this shite. WTF?
